Throughout eastern Oregon, small springs often are the sole source of water for wildlife and livestock for many miles, yet their hydrology is poorly understood. Most springs are known only as points on decades-old maps or unattributed features in geospatial data sets. Predicting their continuing viability as water resources during the on-going and future droughts poses a challenge to land management agencies. This talk focuses on the work done since 2015 to better understand the distribution and behavior of springs across eastern Oregon, and to predict their hydrologic response to changing precipitation by combining repeat field observations, water chemistry, and Landsat imagery.
